Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences.

You are Welcome to Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, University of Karachi.

 

Facilities

The department has sufficiently equipped six teaching and training labs, TV lab, news lab, advertising lab and two computer labs, (one each for Urdu and English). The department runs FM Radio channel which provides a training base for the students in radio broadcasting.

 

Research

Final year students are required to undertake a research project and submit their report in the final semester. The department has a large collection of such reports focusing on almost every aspect of the media, which are also published from time to time.

 

Publications

An annual journal, known as ‘Journal of Mass Communication’ is published. This bilingual journal is reserved for research articles only. Two to four books are published every year. These valuable publications are the latest and relevant material available to Urdu medium students. Similar approach has been adopted to bring out issues in English. A newspaper entitled “Inkeshaf” is published each semester to provide a training base to students. Students produce the entire content of this newspaper. In 2003, the department launched a monthly newsletter, “The Media Mirror”, which publishes news stories and comments on media related events and issues.
